Big moves made at NHL deadline
The 2014 NHL trade deadline was reliably active, with a number of deals going down not long before the 3 p.m. ET cutoff. Among the biggest: The Montreal Canadiens acquired left wing Thomas Vanek from the New York Islanders; the Los Angeles Kings grabbed right wing Marian Gaborik from the Columbus Blue Jackets; and, in a deal involving two potentially playoff-bound parties, the New York Rangers acquired right wing Martin St. Louis -- who had requested a trade -- and sent right wing Ryan Callahan and two high draft picks to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Which was the biggest deal? Which team will fare best down the stretch? Who wins it all?
The Original Six still rule in the Uni Watch Power Rankings, with the Montreal Canadiens taking the top spot and four more members finding footing in the top six. Do you agree? Or should some newbies take the higher places? Click the logos to set your rankings!

Stanley Cup: Blackhawks-Bruins
The Blackhawks are one win away from a Stanley Cup championship thanks to two goals from Patrick Kane in Game 5. However, injury concerns to a star player on each side -- Patrice Bergeron for Boston and Jonathan Toews for Chicago -- create an interesting sub-story to Game 6. What impact will the injuries have on the series? Will Chicago wrap it up in Game 6 or will the Bruins bounce back and treat sports fans to another Game 7?
